Boats are disposed on racks, unlimited launching in 5 minutes, 365 days a year, yachtsmen can board safely on our pontoons.
Yachtsmen subscribe on a yearly basis so they can enjoy the unlimited launching throughout the year. In order to go out, you just need to call, if possible the day before (or on the very day) to warn the marina manager. He will ensure the launching before your arrival in the marina. Then, all you need to do is jump in your boat! On your way back, your boat will be managed by the marina teams again, cleaned and stored on the racks.
This technic -directly imported from the United-States (they were using it already in the 60’s)- made the most of the handling equipment development and has been largely democratized in Asia, New Zealand, Spain, and to a lesser extent, France.
Beware however: there should be no confusion with this technic and winterization or the “D system” of some professionals with waterfront grounds. Dry racks marinas require high investments to be recovered on a long-term basis, that is why we consider that a dry racks marina will never be profitable below 200 boats.
The dry stack Marina with racks is exclusively available for motor boats (sailing boats don’t allow fast hefting and storage) up to 9m, 10m on some of our specific marinas.
• Availability: No need to wait for years for a marina berth!
• Security: More and more yachtmen face vandalism: motor or boat theft, nights visits etc. Moreover, tied to a mooring line, a boat is exposed to streams, tides, storms… In our racks, your boat will be safe, stored on steel inside our fenced, secured site.
• Flexibility: Launching 7 days a week within minutes. Despite important tides on the Atlantic coast, the dry stock marina offers more flexibility than a regular marina: Paimpol for instance, you will gain around 45 minutes on regular marina’ schedules.
• For maintenance economy:A boat stored all year long in the water needs an yearly careenage. It is not the case for boats stored on racks: less pollution, oil leaks immediately spottde, up to €500 saved on the antifouling, change of anodes every 5 years only, no problem caused by humidity. With our solution, your boat is rinsed every time you use it and will stay stored perfectly dry.
